We offer Labia Reduction surgery at our private clinics. We understand how women can be affected with this area of their body making them under-confident and embarrassed. There are many reasons why women seek treatment with many finding they are unhappy after childbirth. Some find they can’t wear the clothing they want to or participate in sporting activities. This can lead to lack of sexual confidence and self-esteem
Labiaplasty surgery can restore your confidence with your body and let you lead the life you want. When it comes to this kind of surgery women generally find it easier to discuss their problems with another woman. Dr Lucy and her female team understand the embarrassment that women have about their bodies. We offer a discreet, private and safe environment for you to explain exactly what you are unhappy with and give you the results you want. Whilst this is generally an area that is not exposed we understand you want as perfect results as possible without scarring. We can guide you through the surgical options giving you the most preferable for your needs.

We complete Labiaplasty to:
Remove excess protruding labia
Balance symmetry with uneven labia folds
Rejuvenate the labia following pregnancy, injury or illness
Bringing the labia together if they have come apart after pregnancy or child birth
How else we can improve the pubic area in women
Volume replacement for volume depleted labia which can appear “droopy”. This can be done by a fat transfer or filler
Shaping the mons pubis area by removing excess fat via liposuction or if too much sagging the so called “mons pubis lift”
This will normally take 45 – 90 minutes.
The labia is a vascular structure and heals very quickly with recovery time taking around 7-10 days. However, we do advise that you refrain from heavy exercise and sexual activity for 4-6 weeks following the procedure.
This procedure is permanent, giving you long-term confidence.
Prices start from £2,500.
How will I feel after my Labiaplasty surgery?
You will feel a little uncomfortable for the first 24 – 48 hours. We do apply topical pain relief after surgery and this will help you get through this initial period. Following this time, you will feel a lot more comfortable and can move about and sit down without much discomfort. We do suggest you refrain from heavy exercise and sexual activity for 4-6 weeks after the surgery.
Will the Labiaplasty affect sexual sensation?
Labiaplasty surgery does not affect the nerves that are responsible for sensitivity therefore it will not directly heighten or repress your physical sensation levels during sexual intercourse. However, surveys completed by women who have had labiaplasty surgery have shown that their sexual enjoyment can improve, and this is attributed to their increased confidence.
Will the surgery leave scars?
There are many ways to perform labiaplasty and the best one for you will be planned and discussed with you. Generally the texture of the labial fold means that scars are barely visible and can be hidden following the contours of your body.
What are the risks of labiaplasty surgery?
Complications are rare but the risks include infection, bleeding and nerve injury.
